Remote Work Savvy - Fail Fast & Iterate

ABOUT DUSTIN

Hi, I'm Dustin, the remote work specialist. I've spent nearly 20 years in the software industry with over half of that time spent working remotely. As an industry leader in remote workforce management, I've seen firsthand how remote engineering teams can accomplish amazing things with the right framework in place.

Successfully running remote teams doesn't come easily or naturally for most seasoned IT leaders. Many of the mantras go directly against what you have thought was true your entire career.

I'm here to help you make this transition not only more productive for your company but also more enjoyable for your staff. By embracing the mantra of 'Fail Fast & Iterate' we can, together, shape a truly amazing engineering department!

My services are most effective for leaders who are open to change and have some questions. Like:

  • What can I do to make sure my developers are "putting in their time?"
  • What software tools can make my developers for efficient?
  • Do I need to pay for their office supplies?
  • Won't the team dynamic suffer if the entire team is remote?
  • Should my SDLC and/or ALM change?

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT LIFECYCLE DOCUMENTATION & PLANNING

In my 20 year career in the software industry, I'm not sure I've heard anyone get excited about documenting their SDLC. It isn't the most fun or glamorous part of the job. Because of that, it's importance is often overlooked. No matter if you are starting from scratch or if you have a well-documented start, I can help you tune up the document and shoot for peak performance.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER EFFICIENCY TRACKING & TUNE-UP

Developer efficiency is one of the hardest concepts to grasp as a technology leader. In many ways, it is like tracking the performance of an artist. I believe in focusing on outcomes and not the day-to-day actions of each team member. That being said there are also ways to track the overall health of your software teams. I focus on helping you determine the best KPIs for your teams as well as giving you the tools to explain those numbers to the c-suite and/or board of directors.
